Great to meet up with all the forum members who were there. As the guys have said, great to put faces to names. Was nice to meet up and talk models and plenty of new models in the works because of it. Myself and Niall spent at least 30 minutes watching James set up his models to see what new treasures he was pulling out.

I forgot to bring my good camera with me so dont have any proper pictures, just ones I have taken with the tablet. Highlights for me were Donies awesome chevettes, Sean's very impressive Coleman collection but particularly the 911. But the biggest highlight of the show was Piotr's 1/24 builds. The attention to detail, the craftmanship and the quality finish he has achieved are something any model builder should aspire too. Certainly has given me some inspiration to try produce some better models.

Huge thanks to Donie and team for the bed for the night and for the fantastic event. Plenty of people flowing through all day to see the displays, great facility for the show and great welcoming from everyone. Already looking to see what I can have ready in the hope for another show next year.

A big thank you to Donie, James, Brian, Ted and Sean for putting on a superb display of models. They looked incredible, all of them. I kind of felt a bit of a fraud not having models on display, but Donie has most of mine and a lot more Laughing
The time and effort put in by Donie and his crew of helpers showed, on how well the displays were received.
Great facility with easy access and loads of parking, as always Donie had it all thought out.
It was a pleasure to meet Brian in the flesh too, i know the rest of them only too well at this stage Embarassed
Take a bow lads and well done, i really enjoyed the day!

Greetings everybody,
Thank you all for the good wishes with the Model Show prior to it and the congratulations on its sucess afterwards........yes thankfully it was a great sucess, or so i think.... but that was only due to the help i got from the DRM members...... Thank you to Brian who supplied a huge range of 1/18 scale models made and displayed to perfection, Ted who arrived with an amazing display of his self produced models as did Piotr with his 1/24 scales made with an amazing class and quality.....we are fortunate to have him near by and of course Sean Buckley with his prestigious collection of home built 1/18s from strip.... paint jobs..... to his research....decal manufacture......the finished product is out of this world.......only achieved by "LOVE and dedication " for model making....AS for James who travelled such a huge distance to be with us he had an array of very rare and some times once off treasures in 1/43,,,,,,,,,somebody on this forum said it was the biggest display of rally models ever seen in Ireland and i think they are right....as for Niall who did not display any models but he was our roaming critic and that was important too as he brought all the info from around the hall "Model Spy"
There were many other Rally Car displays by non members of this forum or seldom visitors to it.......and to them i am greatfull and indeed like any event there was a few people who were unable to attend on the day and they know they missed out on a great day......and a great opportunity to meet all the makers and dooers in the model scene.....
To anybody thinking of holding a model show i think we stumbled on to what is a brilliant effect ....that is having a display of photographs in the background just for show and highlighting the scene. Thankfully the dust have now settled and i got time to draw my breath looking back i would change very little and all the dealers on the day expressed a wish to come back next year if the show was to go ahead and i am glad to say the Millstreet Vintage Club had its monthly meeting last night where i reported a profit of 1094 Euro and i got the green light with running the event again in 2016 so work will start in early January for this show. SO now you have almost a full years notice that your help is required !!!!!!!
2016 will be bigger and better so start thinking what you will have for "The Show"

Well done to Donie and his band of helpers. But the thanks also extends to the Lucey family who provided tea, coffee sandwiches biscuit cakes on Saturday night as well as all day Sunday. I had a horrible sore throat so the hot tea was most welcome. As Donie said people love looking at photos - i firmly believe it is the reason facebook has become so successful.
The hall was full so i don't know how it can get any bigger !!! I would like to say we have 12 months to recover/plan but easter 2016 is getting in the way Razz Razz Razz Razz

Excellent news that the financials backed up the huge success of the show. Its a fantastic location and resource to have access to so shows like this have a home. Even better news that it will return for another show next year. I now have a deadline to hit for the remainder of my GXI collection.
